Website: GoAnimate

The Lil Peepz seem to be missing something...

GoAnimate (formerly styled as Go!Animate) is a website that allows people to make their own animated videos, using a Flash Animation app. It has been used even by some noted Animation personalities such as Paul Dini, who used it to produce his web series Super Rica and Rashy. Signing up is free for 14 days, though you must upgrade to a paid account if you want to have access to their full resources. You must be at least 13 years old to join.

There are two ways to make the videos. One is the "Quick Video Maker" which offers several ready-made "animated shorts" (some of which are based on licensed properties) with the settings and actions already selected, and a small cast of characters to choose from (different for each); all you have to do is write the dialogue.

There's also the "Full Featured Video Maker" that allows you to start from scratch and select almost everything by yourself- settings, actions, sounds, FX, etc. (though again, you have a limited cast to use.)

You can also make more characters and post your videos on YouTube, but that requires a paid account. Note that the any videos you publish will have a watermark indicating they were made by GoAnimate (though you can pay to have it removed.)

GoAnimate also has a forum with an active creative community that gives advice and offers examples and contests. However, you must have a paid account to use it.

In late 2014, the site switched to a pay-only site for professionals and businesses.

In early 2015, the GoPlus account type was phased out, turning GoAnimate into a business-only website.

You can find it here.
